Area 51 Deuce
By: Michael Herndon

Parts List:
1 Deuce Engine Kit
1 BT-60 Body Tube (2 1/4" long)
1 7.25" Art Applewhite Saucer

I started out building the motor mount per the
instructions and mounted inside the BT-60 body tube. I
then built the Art Applewhite saucer per the instruction with one exception, the three center fins need to have .330 inch taken off of the root edge.  When you attach the center fins, make sure they are even with the top of the body tube, this will help
maintain stability. I finished with red paint and TripleThick Glaze.

once on two C-6's. The C motors seemed to work better.  Nice slow tumble recovery and landed within 30' of the pad each time. This was a very simple bash and was done within three days.

Sincerely,
Michael Herndon
